Decoupage

What is decoupage?
Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and so on. Commonly an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers. Each layer is sealed with varnishes (often multiple coats) until the “stuck on” appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work. The traditional technique used 30 to 40 layers of varnish which were then sanded to a polished finish.

Ok.. saya lanjutkan ke Bahasa Indonesia ya…
Akhir-akhir ini, Decoupage sangat booming di Indonesia.
Banyak bermunculan kreasi-kreasi craft menggunakan finishing Decoupage.
Juga banyak sekali workshop-workshop Decoupage di tanah air, baik di kota-kota besar seperti Surabaya dan Jakarta, hingga ke luar pulau Jawa seperti di Pekan Baru, Bali, dsb.

Meskipun banyak sekali yang membuat kreasi Decoupage, namun setiap orang, memiliki selera dan aliran yang berbeda-beda. Pilihan warna, komposisi, dan teknik yang digunakan satu sama lain, tidaklah sama.

Hal ini membuat kreasi Decoupage, semakin harinya semakin berkembang dan ramai di Indonesia.

I hope there will be more creative people in Indonesia.. ^_^
